1940's J.C. Higgins Ridge Top Vintage Downhill Skis

J. C. Higgins was a name brand of the Sears Roebuck Company. Many people ask if there was a real "J.C. Higgins" who worked for Sears. There certainly was. John Higgins began working for Sears in 1898 as the manager of the headquarters' office bookkeepers and retired as company comptroller in 1930.

"John Higgins" the employee became "J.CHiggins" the brand name during a discussion in 1908 among Sears' executives of possible names for a new line of sporting goods. At this point, the story gets a bit murky, but Higgins' name was suggested and John Higgins consented to Sears use his name. Since he did not have a middle initial, Sears added the "C."

These old wooden hickory skis are in excellent condition and would be great for a collector or for decorating a ski lodge or ski cabin in the mountains.
